She strives to help all her clients reach their health and fitness goals and applies her extensive manual therapy training and knowledge of neuromuscular patterning and biomechanical principles to accomplish this. Through her dedication to her craft and careful attention to each individual client, Karin enjoys seeing positive results time and time again.
A former modern dancer and long time contact improver and salsa dance enthusiast, Karin brings to her work a love of movement and a passion to help others achieve health and wellness.
